Boss Stewie's New Toy

Funny thing happened to me yesterday. I bumped into one of my readers back in Penang, her name's Jane.

The moment she saw me she said
"TIMOTHY!!!! You look .... so different... from your blog".

I lifted an eyebrow and asked curiously
"Different good or different bad?"

She said "Oh... definitely good.. you're much better looking in real life".

Hear hear everyone... what Jane meant to say was
"Timothy, you look fugly on your blog you make me want to reach into my screen and bitchslap you... could you at least try to look a little less fugly... just try..."

So what she's trying to say is instead of posting more and more pictures like this.
I should post more and more pictures with me posing like this.

and this

Right Jane?

Anyway, since Panasonic sponsored me their camcorder a couple of weeks ago, they have went on to further spoil me by giving me another two cameras.

A Lumix DMZ-FZ18 which has a lens that is soooo cute it looks like a whale's big big eye.
and this compact.Upon receiving it, Skyler and Samantha were very very quick to camwhore in the office.


Now I was really excited about the Panasonic DMZ-FZ18 because I have never owned anything close to an SLR before and this Semi-SLR is the closest I have ever gotten.

So last weekend I made my way to Fridays' at The Curve determined to snap some pictures of something... ANYTHING.
Now every picture with "not so great lighting" that I used to take with my old digicam used to come out blurry and dark. But my Lumix DMZ-FZ18 caught in enough light to take a pretty decent picture, even with a bad photographer like me who doesn't play with the settings much and knows pretty much nothing about photography.

Note that NONE of the photos are photoshopped ok? All natural.

Anyway at Fridays' I snapped away pictures of the food we had from my yummy potato skins.

To my half rack of Beef Ribs.
To... my "date" that night Samantha who I never really gave a proper chance to pose properly.

The poor girl had to have her picture taken while she was halfway talking to me.To when she was trying to swallow her drink.

But I didn't care!!! I was TRIGGER-HAPPY STEWIE that night.

Finally, Samantha gave up trying to talk to me or do anything.

And I was told that if I didn't stop taking snapping annoying pictures of her, she would storm out of the restaurant and I will be left eating alone.

So with a frown on my face, I put down my camera only to have my new camera hijacked by Sam to annoy ME.

She grabbed my camera so fast all I remember hearing were the two words
"AH HAH!"

right after my camera touched the table.

I went through 10 minutes of the night having my picture taken at the most candid shots ever... and realized that it was actually really quite annoying.

And there Sam was shouting
"YEAH!! YOU LIKE THAT DON'T YOU?? YOU LIKE THAT BRIGHT FLASH IN YOUR FACE DON'T YOU!?!? NOW YOU KNOW HOW IT FEELS!!!"

After a while, even Sam got bored of snapping pictures of me so we finished off our meal and walked around The Curve for more people to shoot.

Fortunately we bumped into a couple of old friends of mine to shoot pictures at.

Nahri was a natural.. and loved the attention of my big fat lens.
Simon on the other hand, was more... shy shy in front of the camera.

After snapping pictures all over The Curve, it was time to go and I headed for my car parked in Tesco.

The Car park was filled with cars parked everywhere!So many of them even ILLEGALLY PARKED!!!

And there I was thinking
"What the hell? These people not scared kena clamp wan ar?!"

Which was then did I only realize...You gotta love Tesco.

Good value, great prices... even for clamp penalties.

The purpose of a SLR is TO play with the setting for sharper better picture.
Now pass that camera to me before Panasonic withdraw their sponsorship.
I dunno how to use an SLR either but I WILL play with all the setting... please...

Chapree Da Grande said...

Now that you already got a good DSLR, play around with it, Boss! The auto mode is fine but the semi-manual & manual mode of any DSLR is to die for.

With this free cameras you getting, when will you open up a contest for them? Or at least, more hot chick piktorz? :P
